Should i quit"??

No. Keep losing all the time until you stop losing all the time. That’s what I did. When I first started here last July I couldn’t believe how often I lost. I dropped down to around 1000. And I THOUGHT I was at least a 1300 to 1400 player. So, I set up The following system for myself:

A). Every time I lose I do an analysis of the game and see where I messed up.
B). Every time I lose, I try to win three tactics before playing my next game.
C). Every time I lose, I try to watch one or two 1-minute games by extremely high level players.

Over a 10 month period I slowly improved my rating from 1000 to 1300/1400–Oh and I never use any kind of aids DURING a game. I always play like I’m playing in the tournament face-to-face with someone – – even though I’ve never played in a tournament. Forcing myself to play that way, rather than playing with the use of any kind of aids, has helped me to improve faster than otherwise. Also, remember to look at the profile of your opponent after they beat you; often times you’ll see that they were rated much higher at one point then they are now when they beat you. That means, they’re probably much better than their rating currently shows. That helps tremendously with morale. Good luck.

Analyze your games. Are you making the same mistakes? Not thinking long enough? Studying tactics? Find a new coach if you can.


Nothing wrong with analyzing your own game. I do agree that studying is the key. This game is like a giant puzzle. Without a doubt it has nothing to do with your intellect. I mention that because it is the first thing that one will accuse them selves off. Which leads to the usual "I'm not good enough for chess". In this case, they/you/them... are super wrong. It's literally just a game. And if its complexity escapes someones attention span.... well that's just that and nothing more.


Have fun!

Yes, quit
I hear buffchix mode is not only spicy as hell but has you seeing the game through different demotions.
demintions** goddam auto correct.

i have not played in 30 years and i am doing terrible loosing every game but as i remember before computers i had to keep playing and eventually i was giving my national cousin a run for his money 



If I were you, I would not quit just because you are losing. If chess was negatively impacting you, or you do not have the time for it due to work/other hobbies - then quitting may be considered. Based on what little I heard though, I'd urge you to not quit. Humans are not machines, so streaks of wins or losses with many rating fluctuations are all completely normal. Remember that most people succeed just after the verge of quitting. Unfortunately, I have had long losing streaks before in chess (maybe 10 or so games), but I've also had winning streaks that long too. If you can hold yourself to challenges (in tougher opponents, or especially holding mentally after losses), you will improve in time. The focus should be on learning chess, improving, and having fun; rating follows this, not the other way around.


Lack of interest and conflict with other important activities are reasons to quit, not merely because fellow players seem better.
